Can hearing loss be reversed or cured?

The potential for reversing or curing hearing loss depends on the specific type and cause of the hearing loss. Some types of hearing loss, such as conductive hearing loss caused by an earwax blockage or fluid in the middle ear, can often be reversed with medical intervention. However, most cases of sensorineural hearing loss, which is the most common type and typically results from damage to the inner ear or auditory nerve, are permanent. While there is currently no universal cure for sensorineural hearing loss, hearing aids, and other assistive devices can significantly improve communication and quality of life for individuals with hearing loss.
